What’s worth a look, properly out of my depth but my boots are dead (Hi-Tecs) and i’m starting to ease in to middle age so the skate shoes are out for a bit and it’s fleeces and that
Merrels seem to look alright, but i don’t want to blow a load on something that’ll eventually just be used to take the dog outPosted 2 years agopyranhaSubscriber
The best answer is a pair from a decent brand, that fits you. I’ve got on well with certain models from the Salomon range for years. I’ve a pair of Haglofs which look nicer, but sometimes give me a bit of heel rub. And my Brashers just never felt right after the first half hour. If you’re planning to do any serious walking, get to a store stocking a few brands and try some on. An ill-fitting shoe from the ‘best’ brand is probably worse then a perfect fit from the rubbish bin. How much time and cash you spend should partly be determined by how much time (and where) you’re going to be walking in them.Posted 2 years agorighogSubscriber
I was convinced I needed a pair of Brasher boots, did all the research and they were online definitely the boots for me…Until I tried a pair on ! They just did not fit at all, luckily I was in Keswick when buying them so I was not short on choice. I ended up with a pair of Meindl boots which fit perfectly, but only found this out as the shop had a massive selection.
So my advise….go to a shop with a lot of choice, buy some that fit.Posted 2 years agobinnersSubscriber
I’m just about to head out on to the moors to christen my new Meindl’s. I splashed out as they were in the sale and so were reduced from hideously expensive to just really expensive. I’m banking on them lasting for years though. They better bloody had!!
They replace a set of Keens, which put in some valiant service. I’d had Merrells in the past, and always liked them, but the last pair I had fell apart in 5 minutes. I’d never buy another pair!Posted 2 years ago
